Harassed Sony head Howard Stringer asserted the hacking problem which knocked out the company’s online services and revealed user information was just a jinx in the corporation’s advancement, a report said.

Stringer said no system is perfect and hack-free and that the incident was just a minor setback in the way of the company’s progress.

The incident saw Sony’s gaming arena take a major blow with a loss of more than 100 million users, whose personal details had been compromised and weakened its networks. The chief, however, did not want to comment on the firm’s earnings which will be released later this month.

Reaction to Sony’s offer of few old games as a reward for patience is not known still.
